Sucks to be Jared Kushner.

Courtesy of the Boston Globe:

Graduates of the Harvard class of 2003 are making known their displeasure with the current White House administration in an unusual way, using the platform of their 15th reunion alumni notes to launch harsh, personal attacks on a former classmate.

“Shame on you, Jared Kushner,’’ Sophia Macris wrote in the traditional Harvard Red Book alumni listings, in the most blunt of multiple critiques targeting President Trump’s son-in-law and official presidential adviser.

The salvos against Kushner — by a small number of alumni — are tucked in among the usual fare of alumni notes, where former classmates proudly recite their latest accomplishments, volunteer work, a move across the country, or the birth of a child.

Kushner is not expected to attend the 15th reunion festivities that begin Thursday in Cambridge, but his younger brother, Josh, is planning on attending his 10th Harvard reunion. Jared Kushner, through the White House, declined to comment.

As if that was not enough of a kick in the teeth Kushner also recently had to sit down yet again with the Mueller investigators. 

Courtesy of ABC News:

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner, spent nearly seven hours with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team earlier this year for a second interview, a source familiar with the meeting confirmed Wednesday to ABC News.

The source added that, in the two times Kushner has met with investigators, it was in the role of witness – not as a target. The first interview, which happened in late 2017, largely dealt with Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn., according to the source.

The second meeting, which occurred in April of this year, focused on the campaign, the transition and other topics, including the circumstances of the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, the source said, adding that there were no questions about Kushner’s financial dealings or his family business.

Appearing on CNN Wednesday evening, Kushner’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, said “Kushner was there in the campaign, he was there in the transition, and he worked in the White House when events occurred after the inauguration that is of interest to the counsel. They asked him questions, he answered every single one. It was thorough.”

Lowell said that Kushner spent “a total of over nine hours with them from November and then in April.”

I am not an expert on interrogation techniques, though I did watch a lot of Hill Street Blues as a young man, but I would guess that after over nine hours of testimony Kushner was not able to hold it together and protect his father-in-law for very long. 

I am guessing by hour one Kushner was spilling his guts like 7-year old after the all you can eat buffet at the Golden Corral. 

However, there WAS a little good news for the Kush as well.

Courtesy of NYT:

Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, and senior adviser, has been granted his permanent security clearance, a person briefed on the matter said on Wednesday, ending a period of uncertainty that had fueled questions about whether Mr. Kushner was in peril in the special counsel investigation.

Mr. Kushner is a senior presidential aide with a prominent role in Middle East diplomacy. But his F.B.I. background checks dragged on for a year and became one of many political distractions for the White House. Even some inside the administration suspected that Mr. Kushner’s delay reflected legal problems on the horizon.

The permanent clearances make Mr. Kushner, who is married to Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, eligible to view some of the United States’ most closely guarded secrets, including the daily intelligence briefing that Mr. Trump receives and the delicate intelligence on the Israelis and the Palestinians that former diplomats said can be valuable in negotiations. Top-secret clearances are typically required for people viewing foreign intelligence or sitting in on high-level White House meetings.

There is NO evidence that the conflict of interest and security concerns that the White House had about Jared have been resolved. 

I heard one pundit say quite bluntly that if Jared Kushner were not the son-in-law of the guy in the White House that there is no way he would have been granted this clearance. 

I agree with that wholeheartedly. 

So to sum up, Jared Kushner is an embarrassment to his alma mater, most likely spilled his guts to the Special Counsel, and has been given access to the country’s top secrets which he can now pass on to his business associates in foreign countries in exchange for money and influence.

Update: New reporting is saying that Kushner got his security clearance directly from Trump and bypassed the White House protocol. \

Color me unsurprised.

    Soooo….. Trump and Co. are constantly throwing the word “spygate” out there to stir up their rabid base. Since the Crooked Hillary saying is weakening. Is this a Russian tactic? You know if you keep saying it they will hear. Or has that tactic been used forever by those desperate to have their own way? Donald and his loud raspy voice is good for being the town crier. Wolf! Wolf! Yeah, we all knew how that story ended, right?

      “according to emails reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. In a September 2016 email, Stone “urged” his acquaintance Randy Credico—a radio personality who had interviewed Assange—to ask the WikiLeaks founder “for emails related to Mrs. Clinton’s alleged role in disrupting a purported Libyan peace deal in 2011,” ”

    SCOOP!

    “Ivanka Trump’s security clearance was upgraded to full Top Secret at the same time as Jared Kushner’s upgrade on May 1, according to a person briefed on the matter. The White House declined to comment on this story.”
